We departed the Lowell area across Hwy 2 towards Western Massachusetts, entering the Mohawk Trail across the Berkshires. We were welcomed with beautiful color, muted by the rains, yet nothing like we have seen before. I shot some iPhone photos which are below. We looked for possible campsite but everything was shut down for RV's like us.
We continued south along Hwy 7 then crossed over Into eastern upstate New York to catch the Taconic Trail just ...
This morning we explored the area of Boston known as Beacon Hill. It is an area with lots of narrower streets with traditional gas lamps (now electrified). We had a great breakfast on Charles Street at a place called Paramount. I had Huervos Rancheros which was awesome (read with american accent).

... The road winds through forested hills and the Fall foliage was just beginning to show its mettle. There are scenic lookouts at various spots and we sampled the Hairpin Turn and climbed to Whitcomb Summit (in the car, I might add). The scenery was stunning and we enjoyed a brief picnic in the warm sun. Then back into North Adams before climbing up to the highest point in Massachusets, Mt Greylock (almost 4000 ft up), with views ...
